SIDNEY -- On January 9, Sidney City Councilman Brock Buckner, Sr., said he hadn't made a decision on seeking a four-year term on the city council.

This evening he made his decision, announcing he has submitted the necessary paperwork to seek his first four-year term on the council.

"Councilman Buckner has officially put his name in; paperwork is done. Campaigning will start soon. I'm not going to inundate everybody with a bunch of ... stuff. I'll just trust the people, trust the public. If you guys want me, then I'll know that in November. I plan to do a meet and greet in my home, and I plan to do a meet and greet on the north side somewhere," Buckner said.

Buckner said during his few months on the city council, he has seen numerous people involved in the community, working to make Sidney a better place.

"We have men and women that care about this city. Since I've been in the chair, I have begun to see so many people get involved in so many different things; so many different community-minded programs and I love that Sidney is doing that and recognizing that, and I would like to think it is because city council has made it a point to be accessible, to be seen, to come down and be seen at the E3 meetings and be seen at the Rotary meetings, be seen at the parks and that you guys talk to us. We want to address things. We're not perfect. We're not going to please everybody but we're definitely going to do our best for the greater good of Sidney," Buckner said.

Buckner was appointed to fill the term vacated by Roger Gallaway when he resigned.
